Global Leaders Alliance Fellowship

About Alliance University:

India assumed the G20 Presidency from Indonesia and will host the G20 Leaders' Summit for the first time in 2023. The theme for India's G20 Presidency, "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" or "One Earth • One Family • One Future," is taken from the ancient Sanskrit text of the Maha Upanishad. This theme emphasizes the interconnectedness and value of all forms of life on Earth, including humans, animals, plants, and microorganisms. As a demonstration of its commitment to this theme, Alliance University in Bengaluru is now inviting applications for its flagship postgraduate diploma program, Global Leaders' Alliance (GLA), from citizens around the world, with a special focus on candidates from G20 nations.

As a top-ranked university in India, Alliance University is committed to addressing the complex challenges of the 21st century by fostering a community that leads the charge. The University envisions re-imagining the university's traditional idea by creating a convergence of business, engineering, law, and liberal arts programs, which is the core academic philosophy behind its trans disciplinarity approach. This approach encourages the free-flowing exchange of ideas between divergent streams of knowledge like public policy, data science, technology and law, physics, philosophy, or businesses and rhetoric, trans disciplinarity nurtures a dynamic foundation for the spirit of collaboration, inquiry, and enterprise.

Alliance University invites applications for its flagship postgraduate diploma program, Global Leaders' Alliance (GLA).
